Most know Hopalong Cassidy from the movies of the 1930's starring William Boyd. But the original Hoppy was a much different character, the subject of several dozen historically accurate novels. Here he is a red-headed and hot-blooded young cowhand about to marry a neighbor's daughter. A nasty Mexican stirs up enmity between his outfit and the neighbor's, and violence ensues. Stan Winiarski's voice is deep, Texan, rough and expressive. He shades the characters subtly, not attempting full-blown unique voices. The match between story and narrator is exquisite.
